    New Release! Test Studio 2012 R2 SP1

    Our engineering and testing crew has been hard at work to get the latest release of Test Studio out the door! Test Studio 2012 R2 SP1 is now ready for you to download and install! Our service packs generally focus on bug fixes and under-the-cover enhancements; however, this release has some really exciting new features. Two of my personal favorites are searching within a project or test, and Silverlight/WPF scrolling of elements via the UI. First off, search. Ease of navigation through a large test suite or test is a very tedious task. There’s also a discoverability issue if ...

    Debugging Coded Steps in Test Studio Express (Visual Studio)

    Every test suite of any significance will require you to have some form of coded steps. As awesome as Test Studio is, there are always going to be things you’ll have to do via code. Test oracles to check your database or file system would be one example. Backing APIs for setup and teardown actions would be another. Sometimes it’s just handy to have a breakpoint where you can pull up Visual Studio’s Immediate window and do live queries of the web page’s Document Object Model (web apps) or Visual Tree/XAML Tree (Silverlight or WPF applications). I’ve just uploaded a ...

    Use Visual Event To Explore JavaScript Events In Your Application

    Visual Event is a little tool I found. When I say that I "found" it - I literal discovered it after Google-ing "detect javascript events" or something to that effect. Neither Telerik nor I personally have any affiliation with the Visual Event product or its makers. Anyway the tool will help you determine what javascript events are associated with a particular control. Javascript events are a crucial part of UI automation. Good understanding of how and when they are employed in your app can save you a lot of trouble. 90% of the time switching your step to ...
